Hillary: It’d send an awesome signal if we elected a woman president sometime soon

Dear God, if you’re up there, hear an atheist’s prayer: If it’s a choice between Hillary jumping in the race tomorrow and campaigning earnestly for three years or Hillary doing cutesy self-aggrandizing will-she-or-won’t-she media trolls like this every few months until 2015, please, please grant her the decency to choose the former. I can take the Clintons making their case out on the trail. I can’t take the political equivalent of LeBron James’s “The Decision” stretched out for years on end. Unless, of course, she has fun with the idea and declares 18 months from now that she’s “taking my talents to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” Then I’ll give her a pass.

Looks like the choice in 2016 is likely to be between someone who pushes Democratic policies because she believes in them and someone who pushes Democratic policies when it’s in his personal political interest to do so. How do you prefer your liberal medicine? Delivered straight, or deceitfully on the assumption that you’re too stupid to recognize it for what it is? That’s our choice, I guess.

Hillary would like to see a woman like:
– Herself (preferred)
– Chelsea (acceptable).

I’d rather see someone more like Jeane Kirkpatrick, the former ambassador to the UN. Unfortunately, Ms Kirkpatrick left us a few years back.

No thank you Hillary, we’d tried the affirmative action presidency. We prefer competency.

If Jeanne Kilpatrick, Condi Rice, Li Cheney, the message is strong women have a place in the Oval Office.

If it’s Hillary, the message is we’ll hireanyone.

Gender is ….. IRRELEVANT.
But it would send a terrible signal to the Middle-East, if Hillary were to be elected.

Tip to you, Hillary.

The Potential First Female President has just published her OPED at Breitbart.

I’d like to see a COMPETENT person as POTUS.

The focus on gender/race/creed thing is just so much B.S. Let’s look where it got us with Obama.
Reminds me of that Tennessee Ernie Ford song Sixteen Tons

Let’s see, the Left/Progressive movement convinced us that electing the liberal black guy as President, regardless of his lack of qualifications, was a good idea and we can see how that worked out.

Soooo, I’m gonna say no on this one. I would rather have an adult in the White House. By adult I mean a person who takes responsibility for both the victories and the failures- like a grown up does.

No more whining. No more “What difference does it make.” Because darlin’ it makes a heck of a lot of difference.

It would send an awesome signal if America TOTALLY REJECTED the woman who argued that she was the most qualified person to handle the proverbial emergency 3am phone call to the White House only to be completely AWOL when that call came in.

Hillary was responsible for the safety & security of our Embassies & our Ambassadors.

o On 9/11/12 – the anniversary of 9/11 – 20 U.S. Embassies throughout the Middle East were attacked. Being unprepared, many were damaged, burned, and even over-run.

o Just before the attacks on 9/11/12, Hillary / the State Department ordered the U.S. Marines guarding the Cairo, Egypt Embassy NOT to carry live ammunition…the Embassy was over-run on 9/11/12.

o After 2 previous terror attacks on Stevens in Benghazi, after he warned about the massive rise in Al Qaeda’s presence in Benghazi, & even after he warned that if he did not have additional security & a 3rd attack occurred he would DIE, Hillary rejected pleas for more security, ‘sentencing Stevens to die’. During the attack which was part of the Middle East-wide attacks on U.S. Embassies on 9/11/12 – which lasted for more than 8 hours, Response Teams were ordered to Stand down TWICE — Americans under fire were abandoned to die.

o After Benghazi, Clinton participated in the whole-scale cover-up of the truth, ‘treason’, & complete Foreign Policy Failure in Benghazi which she, in part, was responsible for! Her ‘NOTORIOUS’ feigned rage & despicable scream of “What does it matter (now)” is an INSULT to the Americans this administration & SHE abandoned & who died in Benghazi! TO REWARD HER WITH EVEN AN OUNCE OF TRUST OR POWER WITHIN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AFTER THIS WOULD BE OUR OWN BETRAYAL & INSULT TO AMBASSADOR STEVENS & THE OTHER AMERICANS SACRIFICED IN BENGHAZI. This nation deserves better!

So I guess that’s the Dem strategy from now on: pick a so called “minority group” or “protected class”, make it a candidate, and then guilt people into voting for him/her because it would be “historic” to do so and “send a great signal to the rest of the world”. Who cares about actually picking someone fit for the job?

Last time we absolutely had to vote for Obama because it was going to be historic and send a great signal to the world that a black president was elected (because racism!!!). Now it is going to be historic and send a great signal that we elect a woman (because sexism!!!). What’s next: a Hispanic, Asian, gay, transvestite,…. a dog? Because any of those could be made to be “historic” and “send (whatever) signal to the rest of the world”.

For a party so beyond race and gender they certainly love to make a big deal about someone’s skin color and reproductive organs.

How low have we sunk that not even the Office of the President can be devoid of PC crap?
